On first blush I don’t like it but I will reserve full judgment until the rest of the offseason plays out.

now that's the spirit. this is like the debate of drafting for needs or talent. i'd always draft for talent. Lakers can sign one dimensional 3 point shooters on the cheap now we have the big 3 in place.

Oh, so this is why LG crashed earlier. Went to NBA.com and didn’t see any news.

For the record, this is a TERRIBLE trade. Quote this post on 7/29/2022 when we failed to acquire #18 because of this signing.

We now need depth. I think I seen rumors that we are linked to Rudy Gay and Carmelo. I wouldn't really like the fact that we are getting older, but it is what it is. We need to fill in all the holes on our team and we have a lot now.

Number 18 sure wasn’t coming with kuzma, harrel and KCP as their 3rd best players

Lebron and AD signed off on this. 100%.

It’s funny. People whine about needing to take advantage of brons 2 year window while preserving him.

This does that.

Now people whine about it. Russ is elite and an animal. Plus everyone other than mr. sensitive has loved him as a teammate.

Bron, ad, Russ is ridiculous.

#18 was coming and would have arrived if AD and LeBron hadn't been injured.

Trading away Harrell and Kuzma is addition by subtraction. So really we’re just trading away KCP and a first rounder.

Wizards gave up Wall who hadn't played in years and a protected 1st rounder that may never convey for Westbrook.

A year older Westbrook gets the #22 pick in a good draft and Kuz/KCP/Trez?

You need to keep that #22 pick Rob. Don't get swindled.

Spacing is overrated


If anything the Suns series taught us it was our biggest need. Now we add a player that nobody guards in the playoffs. We literally dominated the Rockets last year by not guarding him.

What the Suns series taught us is that health is #1. We were up 2-1 and leading game #4 when AD went down, so personnel decisions being based on what happened there makes no sense.

On the other hand, the Bucks beat that Suns team in the Finals despite shooting 32% from three the entire playoffs. As long as we stay healthy, play great D, and make efficient shots from anywhere on the court (FTs as well), we'll be fine next season.

Welcome Russ!

have yall actually seen Westbrook play the last few years??? Westbrook fills up a stat sheet but he does not help a good team become a contender.... this will be a disaster! Not only does this cement our window shut, our team can implode where Lebron AND AD jump ship. And then Westbrook has the worst contract in the NBA so we cant just move off him.
I thought you were smarter than this Pelinka

Trade cannot happen until August 6th which mean Sacramento can still get involved and Dennis could also be involved as a sign and trade.

Lakers Buddy/Westbrook
Was Dennis/Cap Relief/KCP/22nd
Sac Kuzma/Trez
